Where Does My Joy Come From - 25

Monday, January 25, 2016

Where does my joy come from today...

.... I didn't get any exercise in for my team over the weekend. So I wanted to do extra today. Plus, Monday, Wednesday and Friday are my additional strength days. Ergo, I perched my new and shiny laptop in the middle of the living room table, logged on to CBS and set it to Blue Bloods. I missed most of the season, so time to catch up. There is just nothing like Magnum PI and a New Kid on the Block catching the bad guys. And those Sunday dinners.... But anyway. My knees were still a little iffy from all the step aerobics from last week. So just basic cardio moves for me. For strength, I kept my light weight Zumba sticks around, and had planned to do strength segments during the commercial breaks. Ha, not so!!! Those things actually make Chaka-Chaka sounds, and I found that so funny, that I kept them in my hands the whole time. I got a really, really great workout. 70 minutes of catching bad guys, shaking my booty and building muscle. I think I can fly. Will test that tomorrow.

..... now that I have a laptop again, I can also knit again. It is really tricky to hold a cell phone in your hand to watch Netflix, and knit at the same time. So blanket squares, here I come. I have so many of them, and they are destined to become charity blankets. It is a work in progress.

.... hubby called from the hospital garage before going in to work, just to hear my "beautiful voice". He does that, and it makes me feel so very loved. I can be prickly at times, and instead of getting annoyed, he thinks I am absolutely wonderful. Huh. Let's keep him :)

    My DIL does that - knits and watches Netflix. When we were there at Xmas time she was watching Sherlock Holmes. DH and I like the series Royal Pains, Drop Dead Diva, and Hart of Dixie. I'll have to check out Blue Bloods.
    Your DH sounds like a real keeper!!!! emoticon

    I love Blue Bloods too! I can see you exercising and moving faster as the plot gets more and more interesting. How sweet that your hubby calls just to hear your voice. Well, we love to hear from you too! Oh, and of course your dogs are slaves to your love and kindness. Have a great week!!!

    Hmm, knitting and Netflix is honestly not a combo I have ever thought about. I have a couple of half-done knitting projects which have paper patterns. They've been sitting unfinished for years. Wonder if they'll ever get done?
    Good job on your workout.

    I enjoy Blue Bloods too; great show! So sweet how your hubby calls to hear your beautiful voice! Mine has not done that in a while; perhaps I'll have to throw some kind of hints around? (-;
